Canadian Crime News, Atlantic:

Another Saint John landlord could be facing a jail sentence after changing his plea to guilty of failing to comply with a court order to bring one of his buildings up to standard.

Sundar Singh's rental property at 245-247 Germain St. has 88 outstanding violations of the city's minimum property standards bylaw, ranging from safety concerns to routine maintenance, dating back to 2005, the court heard.

It is also technically the fourth violation for his wife Marilyn Singh, but city solicitor Francois Beaulieu does not believe she is actively involved in the business, just listed on the deed.

The couple, who lives on Loch Lomond Road, will be sentenced on July 4 after pre-sentence reports are prepared.

There is a sold sign on the building as of today, I think a huge thank you is in order to whomever bought it. Hopefully they will restore the property and not only bring it up to code but restore the building back to it's original historic glory.

I note that the article says that another slum landlord may get a jail sentence. Slum landlords in Winnipeg ( including lawyers, bankers etc ) get away with nothing short of murder.Congrats, NB.
